Customers and staff scattered after the gun was brandished, as can be seen in video capturing the chaotic scene shared by a bystander.
The fall school year nearly began with attempted murder charges for one MI woman after she pulled a gun in a Walmart over school supplies.
"She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them", Novi Police Detective Scott Baetens said.
According to WJBK, the incident started when a couple of women shopping together - ages 32 and 46 - got into an argument with a 20-year-old woman and her 51-year-old mother. There was one left. But a mum in the USA has taken the angst to a whole new level one pulling a gun on several other women during an argument over school supplies. "They began to argue who was the rightful purchaser of that notebook".
WCRZ-FM reports that the two Farmington Hills women were shopping for school supplies, and when one of them reached for the last notebook on the shelf, a South Lyon woman also reached for it. Police told the Free Press that it was the 20-year-old who reached for it.
"She's a valid (Concealed Pistol License) holder", the detective said. All the same, he called the occurrence "a senseless act of violence all the way around". Nevertheless, the authorities still consider that to lay charges against the four women involved.
The police noted that while the gun was loaded there was no round in the chamber.
"A simple assault could be just a local ordinance, a 90-day misdemeanor", Baetens said.
In the end, Baetens said he's unsure who got the notebook.
